I am very interested in getting the LEM mod done on my compact .40 SW.

Is there anyone currently doing this mod on civilian weapons?

I have worked on that new LE model.
It is not an easy gun to work on.
I have achieved decent triggers on them.

Bob, I am not a smith so take this FWIW. However, a few weeks ago I was out at the range and ran into an INS agent who had a .40C with a LEM.

I have a 45F (with about 14k through it) and a .45C (with about 3k through it), both are V1s.

The LEM trigger? They ought to call it the POS trigger we installed to replace the already marginal triggers, such that we can try to take a bite of the American LE market, cuz it is easier to give a new recruit a simplified POS rather than put the time in to train them and give them something decent.

Seriously - no way in hell I would want a LEM after firing that one.

If you can - get you hands on one before you switch.

Teddy J - I keep saying it - but some day I am gonna get serious and send my .45C to you for some "help".

Thanks for listening to my not so humble opinion.

In all seriousness - get what you want. As much as I love my HKs - they ain't no 1911.

I've been shooting a LEM for about 2 years now. The only real complaint that I have is the weight of the trigger (7.5#) and the amount of overtravel. I could install an overtravel screw, but it seems silly. I really like the super short reset though.

I've heard the LEM is very similar to the LDA...is that so? I've also heard the LEM is a nice set up, especially as a concealed carry piece...I guess I have to wait & try one.

Jester, I am no expert but I will say this - I have dry fired an LDA in a shop as well as fire / dry fire the LEM. There was a HUGE difference to me.

I stand by my eariler statements.

However, I don't own either and have not had extensive trigger time with either.

I've got a compact 9 in var 7 & if I could get the LEM w/ a shorter reset, I'd be a happy camper.
